A Saudi groom who divorced his bride on their wedding night has been branded “totally irresponsible” and “utterly insensitive.”

The couple has reportedly accepted to marry without meeting or seeing each other at least one time as is the custom with traditional families that allow the prospective groom and the future bride to exchange looks.

It was only on the wedding night, and as the female guests from the two families were celebrating the wedding, that the groom saw the bride’s face for the first time in the presence of a hired photographer who was getting ready to take their picture.

“You are not the girl I want to marry. You are not the one I had imagined. I am sorry, but I divorce you,” the groom told the bride, local daily Okaz reported on Sunday.
